David Osbaldeston

David Osbaldeston is an artist based in Manchester, UK and he is currently Reader in Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University. David works with combined forms of media to produce works and installations which are often triggered by the manipulation of printed matter as both psychological instrument and material substance. His observations on human behaviour are often reorganised into idiosyncratic systems to realise a parallel logic within the work.
